Hello and welcome to Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly of How Sweet the Sound. Thank you Beverly for hosting this fun event. If you go to visit her you can get a list of all the other participants.

Thank you all so much for your kind comments and prayers for our Newfy girl Molly. She went for her follow-up with her vet and he was not able to take her stitches out yet. She is still draining in a few spots so she's not healed enough to take them out. Poor girl, they are still not sure what caused this but have not ruled out stomach cancer. We are praying it won't be that. She's still on meds and if she has anymore problems then they will want to run a scope down and see inside her stomach. Praying she won't need that done. These pups sure do wrap their paws around our hearts don't they?

Anyway on to some pinkness. I hit a few flea markets last month and here is the collection of things that I bought. Great prices on everything, I don't think my total price here was over $20.00.

Some closeups Lots of pretty embroidered linens.

I thought the violet teacups and saucers were so pretty. I might make some pincushions out of them.

Some pretty bling!

Love this little jadeite chick on nest.

I love old needlepoint, I'm painting the frames white on these.
One of the four vintage cards that I picked up.
Love this little set of embroidered linens.

This Martha Stewart book was only $2.00 and it was even signed. Great find, I watch Martha Stewart everyday, I like to learn something new everyday and her show makes it possible.

This is the type of doll my sister and I used to play with, we thought we were in heaven the day we got our first Barbie.
She even has her own little Bible.

Thank you so much for stopping by it was great to visit with you. Have a wonderful weekend.
Blessings, Shirl

Sorry I'm a little late. Seems like when the sun is out I feel a desperate need to go outside and run errands or just life my face to the heavens and soak in the last rays before winter hits my neck of the woods.

It's always so much fun to share in the pink goodness of the blogs gathered together for Pink Saturday. A collection of some of the nicest women and prettiest blogs in cyberspace!

I've got my arms and heart wrapped around Molly so tight. I wish I could do more...

Wishing you a weekend filled with l♥ve and sunshine!

Dawn said...

Great finds. Love the cross stitch girls. White frames will really freshen them up.

I hope Molly recovers well and they are able to figure out what's going on with all those similar cases!
